Guthrie police detective Jeremy Thorne said the four broke into the old Banner School building. He said the juveniles started a fire in the school while playing with matches and an accelerant, Thorne said.

Police don’t know if the four juveniles intended to burn the school down, Thorne said.

The building, built in 1935, caught fire about 3:50 a.m. Friday. Although the building once housed a school, it had been decommissioned about 15 years ago and was privately owned.

The four juveniles, whose names were not released, face second-degree arson and second-degree burglary charges, he said.

Police think the four juveniles also broke into Cotteral Elementary School in Guthrie and stole several items from the school’s kitchen, Thorne said.

It's kind of sad that those four teens had nothing better to do then burn down a historical school
